Remember when I was gathering inspiration last week for the perfect shade of grey? Well, I was on a mission to select my ideal grey for our bedroom. I attempted to paint our bedroom in our last apartment (seen here), but the grey turned out more blue than I had hoped. When we moved into our new place, I was afraid I would make the same mistake again so I opted for a neutral. It wasn’t until I was introduced to The Paint Studio at Ace that I felt confident enough to start my search again. I am excited to say, this time (thanks to my neighborhood Ace) we got it right, and I couldn’t be happier!
Their mission is “Helpful is Beautiful” and it couldn’t be more appropriate. You walk into The Paint Studio at Ace and feel like you just entered a beauty counter at a high-end department store. The Design Experts offer one on one help that makes you feel like you are the only client in the boutique. After sharing my bedding and inspiration board and reviewing the Paint Studio’s mood-inspired pallets under their bright lighting, we decided Clark+Kensington’s ‘Mysterious Grey’ was the color for me.
The Clark+Kensington Paint + Primer in one eliminates the extra step of priming the wall so you can get right to the fun part – painting! The paint was recently ranked #1 by Consumer Reports for its semi gloss interior paint.
It feels ultra smooth as you are applying the paint and it levels out the ridges and valleys left behind by brushes and rollers. Bonus, it cleans easily by forming a stain resistant barrier that keeps your home looking fresh (major bonus with little hands in the house).
… and the final result!
If you are looking for the perfect grey for any room in your home, I highly recommend Clark+Kensington Mysterious Grey for an easy application and beautiful finish! Ace is having a Star Spangled Instant Savings Event this weekend (July 2nd – 7th), with Instant Savings of $5 off Clark+Kensington and $5 off Valspar paint, so now is the perfect time to start a new project!
Check back tomorrow for a big announcement and to find out why I will be doing a lot more painting in my near future!
